Shock pads add safety from falls, increase the playability of your pitch and ensure that your artificial grass playing surface lasts longer. A shock pad layer will provide natural cushioning and help to increase the lifespan of your artificial grass if it is used as a playing surface by protecting the backing from abrasion and compaction.
In addition, if your artificial grass is being used as a playing surface, a shock absorbing layer will provide a predictable bounce of the ball, and a safer, more cushioned playing surface.
Our shock pads are made using EPP (Expanded PolyPropylene) which is 100% recyclable. It is manufactured without the use of dangerous chemicals or CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons). The EPP sheet sub-layer base can easily be cleaned or disinfected, and it does not absorb water and is resistant to oils and chemicals.
Our shock pads contain a weed membrane layer as standard which is thermally bonded and sandwiched between two layers of shock pad.
For exceptional protection and up to 2.0m Critical Fall Height* (CFH), our Shock Pad delivers a quick and simple solution to meeting the highest standards of play safety. For an idea of the Critical Fall Height protections that can be achieved using our shock pad please see the table below:
We recommend using prefabricated shock pads over those which are poured on site for a number of reasons.
Shock pads come on rolls which are 1.5m x 15m for a total of 22.5 SqM per roll.
We can cut shock pads to the closest half metre in length or work with you to find the best solution for your project.
